About this coffee


Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Misty Valley

The washed coffees of Yirgacheffe have long been prized for their delicate, tea-like aromatics and clean citrus flavor. Recently, producers in the Gedio region have been reinventing the natural process originally developed in Ethiopia to offer a different profile from this well-known origin. The Misty Valley is a prime example of the fruitiness, complexity, and character of these Natural Yirgacheffe coffees.

When the ripe cherries are brought to the mill to dry on raised African beds, they are constantly turned (day and night!) for the first 48 hours of drying to ensure an even evaporation of the moisture from the cherry. This lends consistency and cleanliness to the cup, which can prove difficult in a process prone to mold and uneven air circulation. After the coffee is thoroughly dried and the skin, mucilage, and parchment removed, it is sorted and traded through the Ethiopian Coffee Exchange as a Grade 1 Yirgacheffe.

In the cup, the Misty Valley truly delivers. A perfumed floral aroma leads into a crisp and complex fruit basket flavor. The milky body provides the backbone for the fruit and aromatics, creating a harmonious balance. The cup finishes with a lingering, pleasant mouthfeel.
